Andrews was recently awarded $55 million in a civil case against the Nashville Marriott for its role in a 2008 peephole video incident.

The case also named Michael David Barrett, the man who shot nude video of Andrews in the hotel from an adjacent room and posted it online. He served a 30 month prison sentence.

Barrett was told to pay $28 million and the Marriott, $27 million.

On the show, Kimmel asked Andrews for $1 million and Andrews responded that she had no money, referring to her contracts with Fox Sports and Dancing With the Stars.

When Kimmel referenced her court case, she went on to say her appearance on the show was her moment to come out of hiding.

During the trial, Andrews gave tearful testimony and her father testified that the videotaping incident had left her with feelings of depression and insecurity.

While she acknowledged having received support from people all over the world, she was also very clear that the internet and social media could be evil.

“Mean tweets…they are a dime a dozen,” said Andrews.
